Benefits of weekly boarding at Ruthin School

Promotional Feature

With a proud heritage dating back to 1284, Ruthin School offers the best opportunities for students both academically and in life. This is why we are proud to offer weekly boarding at Ruthin School.

Boarding plays a key role in life for students at Ruthin School, with over 150 students living on-site during the week.

While the thought of boarding may be daunting, there are many benefits to living at the school during term time.

A strong sense of community

Ruthin School has an excellent reputation as a welcoming and inclusive school.

There are over 20 nationalities represented at the school, including Asia, Europe and Africa.

Living in such a diverse community creates a strong bond, invoking a strong sense of community and inclusivity at the school.

More time with friends

Boarding at Ruthin School enables our students to develop socially. By living alongside their fellow students and friends, students can enjoy extracurricular activities in a safe environment. These experiences help each student develop invaluable social skills that stand in good standing when they go to university and throughout their lives.

Study and develop with like-minded friends

Our boarding students also have the opportunity to study together. Collaborative learning has been proven beneficial to young people, and it is something we encourage at the School. We pride ourselves on providing an exceptional education, and simultaneously creating a supportive environment that allows our students to thrive.

Increase student independence

Students that board with us at Ruthin School develop increased independence. Living away from home helps students develop a sense of independence.

Each boarding student is accommodated in one of four excellent boarding houses.
Houseparents are supported by a housekeeper, a boarding assistant and graduate assistant. This tightknit group gives each boarding house a unique sense of community.

We pride ourselves on providing outstanding support for all our students.

Remove the need to commute

The morning commute becomes a thing of the past, and instead, students are set up for the day in the best way possible, ready to focus on their studies.

The lack of a commute, combined with our outstanding educational and boarding facilities, gives students the best platform to start their day and maximize every moment, whether in the classroom or in extracurricular activities.

Benefits of attending Ruthin School

While we highly recommend boarding at Ruthin School due to the benefits we have outlined above, students who do not choose to board with us do not have a diminishing experience.

Ruthin School is recognised globally for its commitment to academic excellence, and students who attend the school can gain entry to top university destinations all over the world due to the outstanding education they receive from the highly skilled staff at the school.

The health and wellbeing of our students is our top priority, with security on-site and access to registered nurses on the school grounds.
